KPRC members rides list for 2012

Here is the link for those interested in recording their planned rides for December and the new year. This is a great way to encourage other riders to attend the same event so please keep it up to date.

I have created access rights for most members to access this document which will enable you to edit and add new entries. I have left last year's  rides on the sheet but without dates, so feel free to up date those details when they are available.

Let me know if you have any problems to steve @ (without the spaces)

Mike Fricker - injured

I would have posted this on Saturday, but I didn't want to immediately overshadow the shocking news about Alan Roodenburgh.

Jo phoned me the other day to tell me that Mike had an accident on his bike recently - no one else was involved, and he thinks he slipped on an expansion joint.

Jo was relaying what Mike had told her, and I was having a little trouble visualising exactly what happened, but the gist of it is that in landing Mike hit a barrier with his hand and did some serious damage in dislocating the ring and pinky finger of his right hand.

He has had one operation at St Georges already and was waiting to see if another was necessary. He has also been signed off work for several weeks, and as he is unable to drive, they could well have trouble getting to the Anniversary Lunch on the 19th.
